Occasional Poetry and Bioshock

Guys, go check out vildrosor's fine poem "two:" fav.me/d5qljqb

I think it's a really good example of "sketching" through poetry, capturing an occasion or a feeling and just jotting it down. And I think that's really, really important for building to other projects.

There are two writings of my own for which I'd like some support. I think you guys will love what I've done paraphrasing translations of Cavafy. Really proud of how "At the Cafe Door" turned out.

I also just finished writing on Bioshock 2. The game addresses some difficult political issues thoughtfully; it's a terrific introduction to the best political theory has to offer. Please do give that a look if you have time.

Thank you all in advance. I'm grateful for your patience.

  • Listening to: Bach
  • Reading: Biogea, by Michel Serres
  • Playing: Bioshock 2
  • Drinking: tea

Writing is what I do. I have written some poetry:

- "Enfolding"
- "Haiku that might as well have been purchased at Walmart"

But the majority of my writings have been criticism and analysis:

- On Emily Dickinson's "Our share of night to bear..."
- On the Gettysburg Address
- On "Batman Begins"

If you like what I write - or if you're particularly pleased with my comments on your work, tell me on the blog or here, and do consider bookmarking or subscribing to my blog. I'm thrilled to be a part of DA: many of you have incredible work and I'm looking for the right words to express my delight with it.

Am collecting facebook likes for my webpage. Let me know if you give a "like."

I just want to take a moment to thank you for being one of my watchers. :w00t:
Your support, thusfar, means a great deal to me.

Since you found something in my gallery to your liking, I'm hoping you'd consider checking out my comic on FaceBook. I've been working hard on this project for a while now, and - come the first of the year - we'll be launching a fundraising campaign so the comic can be produced. Even if you can't donate, yourself, sharing the project with friends and family - even liking the page to show support - would mean the world to me.

Again, thank you for watching, and thank you for all the support you've shown.

Time to get back to work. :work:
